Low Country Boil
Shrimp is one of my very favorite things to eat. I love it SO MUCH but I don’t eat it all that often. Which is possibly a good thing since apparently I’m supposed to be allergic to shrimp. I’ve never had a reaction though thankfully.
I had been wanting sausage and shrimp something fierce! So when this recipe popped up on my eMeals menu for this week I was STOKED.
When I was very very little, I can remember my parents taking me to a restaurant that was Cajun and your table was covered in paper and when your dinner came they just dumped it onto the table. Corn on the cob, shrimp (and I’m sure other seafood), potatoes, onions, and maybe sausage. I remember going there a lot but I’ve never attempted to make anything like that at home….until this week.
The whole time it was cooking my husband was giving me a hard time and making fun of it. I don’t think he thought it was going to taste good, especially when he saw there were lemons floating around.
He was pleasantly surprised. And I got my wish for sausage & shrimp all in one night!
